    The food was good. The waitress was very cheery, yet my sense was she was burdened with too many tables. Her return to our table wasn't often untimely. Though to redeem her, we took longer than usual to decide what we wanted for entrees because we were engaged in so much conversation. Unfortunately, the only bad taste I came away with was their charge of $4.00 for a 1 -2 oz. additional side of Raitta. It's yogurt! If they had served enough Raitta with the particular dish it came with we would not have needed to order an additional side of it. Then to be charged $4.00!

    As usual the food was excellent, but we waited 30 minutes to be seated. After ordering, it took 45 minutes to get any food and our waitress never came to check on us or apologize for it taking so long. We had no water and we were starving by the time our food got to the table at 9pm, 1 1/2 hours after our reservation time.

    First, the food was great. It's nice to have another option in Jackson. Just know: 2 was HOT and I like hot. And now, the service. Hmmmm- it oscillated between rude and impatient to hystical. We kept thinking we were being filmed/punked to see how we would respond. Due to the strangeness of it, I'm going to chalk it up to a bad day and try again. We'll let know!

    I know it's getting harder and harder to find qualified wait staff, but this was truly bad. It started with the hostess who said to follow only to leave us stranded and backin tracking out to the entry. Next time only got 2 menus. Our server was trying to help other servers, but right in the middle of taking our drinks orders? Without even an excuse me? Clearly the table next to ours was more important. Got that all sorted and our pappadam came out with all of our sides. I'm sorry, but I've actually been to India and the idea is to place rice in the center of a plate (these were way too small) and ring the rice with curry and various veg. By the time our main came all the sides were cold. It was a shame because the food was very good.

    Again we enjoyed the mussels with naan. Request spoons to share the sauce it is so good! The naan was good also...better than last time. We saved the coconut milk curry (sauce) for later enjoyment. Murg Makhani or the butter chicken was delicious. The right amount of warmth and very tasty. It could have had more cashews!! The Palak Paneer didn't have much flavor. It was like blender spinach with a few pieces of chicken in it. Added the coconut milk curry to it and some of the butter chicken sauce and found it to be very tasty....just couldn't get past the green spinach puree. I know...curry...puree not leaves of spinach. Can't remember the name of the dessert but it was wonderful...sort of a cheesecake recommended by waiter.

    Service was worse than poor and the kitchen could not time anything right. My appetizer was cold, when it was supposed to be hot. I sent it back and it back cold the second time. My friends had clams in a sauce. They brought it and the watress opened the pot to find no sauce, so it went back to the kitchen. When returned, the sauce was exquisite, but there only 6 clams and one was empty. Even worse, the pot contained 2 shrimp at the bottom - nowhere on the menu did it say that shell fish were included. Fortunately, I can eat shrimp, but if it had been crab, lobster or crayfish I would have gone into antifilactic shock instantaineously from eating the sauce. Wine list is very limited and they were out of the bottle we ordered.

    The three (out of a total of six) main courses we tasted were all very good to excellent, and the portions were large. The appetizers we tried were OK. The menu offers only a very limited selection. The restaurant seems to save on plates (too small for a typical Indian meal of several shared curries plus rice) and flatware (only forks are handed out). The decor is interesting, but the booths, with their sharp corners and edges, are hard to enter and exit.

    I've eaten Indian food for years now. This is the worst Indian food ever. Bland and flavorless. They are charging too much. 2 samosas for $8 !!!!..... Ridiculous. The rice was bland and dry. Naan was microwave kind. Never ever going here again. We had to go eat at another place after wasting $85 at this. Complete waste of money and time. Now they have decorated the place well ( British India ). That's the only good thing.

  • Best Indian Cuisine in Jackson :)
    WyomingCowboy
    Dined on 7/19/2014
    OK, I know that doesn't say much...as it is the only Indian cuisine in Jackson, except for a couple of imitators. But we have traveled to India, and had authentic Indian foods, and this is pretty close to the real thing. Only issue we had is that the spiciness varies nightly...I think they are still working on the right mix. But no matter the mix, it is good. For example, some nights you can order a "2" out of 3 on spice and it will blow your socks off. Last visit, a "2" was not even memorable for its spiciness. I suppose some folks might be complaining. Butter chicken is outstanding.

    My last review of The Indian was pretty scathing as we waited almost an hour for our food and I was served entirely raw chicken. This time we still waited FAR too long despite a later reservation (at least 45 minutes). But their Indian menu is just SO GOOD! That said, this is the second time my wife has ordered off of the Thai side of the menu to great disappointment. Stick with the Indian side of the menu and be ready to wait. IMO, the food is well worth it.

    We loved the atmosphere of this restaurant. It's very well done. However, when we walked in, two people (including the owner or manager, I believe) walked by us, completely ignoring us -- finally the bartender came over and seated us. The food was good -- but not any better than a run-of-the-mill Indian restaurant in a strip mall. The wine list was a joke. The server forgot our appetizer, forgot that we ordered garlic naan (instead of plain), corrected my pronunciation of raita, and generally rushed us right out of there (didn't even ask if we wanted dessert). He was trying to clear our plates numerous times while we were still eating (and the place was NOT busy). Bottom line: many much better choices in Jackson.

  • The Spice of Life
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/22/2014
    The spice of life is alive and well at the Indian. My family and I ordered samosas and malay beef satay to begin. The food was well-seasoned and perfectly prepared. My favorite element of the evening were the various sauces and chutneys. Each has a distinctive, fresh flavour and compliments the dish superbly. Our server was knowledgable about the menu and very attentive. The Lamb Vindaloo was the favorite at the table though it was difficult to decide which was best of the Butter Chicken and the Tikka Masala. To finish we shared the best carrot dessert ~ shredded and poached in ghee seasoned with cinnamon and cardamom, sprinkled with cashews. I look forward to having more family and friends visit to show them my favorite new spot!

    I took my wife here for her birthday. We had a reservation We were greeted quickly and seated. We had plenty of time to review the menu by the time we were first greeted by our server. No specials were offered nor were we offered any advice or special information about the menu. My wife ordered chai tea and was served some chai vodka. It was fixed promptly, except that the chai was served in a tea cup, tea bag steeping with no milk. Weird. The chai was awful. Our food arrived literally 30 minutes after we ordered it. Our server apologized by saying that we were behind a "9 top". Our bad. Call and ask if a 9 top will be ahead of you. Food was really good. Service, not good. Lucky for them it's the only Indian food in Jackson.

    Ryan Haworth has done it again. Like his Teton Thai in Driggs, The Indian combines lovely, comfortable design with friendly service and very good food. The Indian is one of the new handful of visionary, must-try Jackson restaurants. The menu is simple, and the food a work in progress. The Butter Chicken and naan were as good as any we've had, while the vegetarian entrees still needed a little work. Ryan is an artist with a clear vision, so there's no doubt he'll soon get everything exactly right. The portions are generous, and while the prices might seem a tad higher than your neighborhood Indian joint, they're quite fair given the Jackson Hole location. The cocktail list is impressive, and we've heard the bar scene is lively.
